Loved this old historic hotel. The atmosphere in the lobby is wonderful with the dark wood, tiled floor and old pictures hanging on the walls to give you a sense of old San Antonio. There' s a lovely open courtyard with a fountain and very nice landscaping and palm trees. The pool was nice, with palm trees, situated in another courtyard, surrounded by the hotel. Our room was very spacious... almost seemed like it needed more furniture and could use a little decorating/updating, but I'm not complaining! It was very clean and the beds were comfy. It was nice to have a room that you could move around in. Our room had a nice terrace that overlooked the pool, so it was very pleasant to sit outside on the warm afternoon. Location of the hotel was perfect - literally right next door to the Alamo and a block away from the Riverwalk. Rumor has it that the hotel is haunted, but no ghosts were seen on the night we were there, although the long hallways and creaky floors set the tone - kind of reminded me of the hotel from The Shining! The breakfast seemed quite pricey, so we just decided to head next door, grab a coffee at Starbucks and sit outside along the Riverwalk. The staff was courteous and helpful. Very pleasant stay and reasonable price. I would absolutely stay there if I were to find myself in San Antonio again!
